The rumor has been circulating since fall 2019, yet it still has not found a clear answer. Was Alia Shawkat in a relationship with Brad Pitt about three years after he split from Angelina Jolie? In an interview with the New Yorker, the actress who starred in Being the Ricardos with Nicole Kidman, Duck Butter, The Sex List, and who is currently promoting the last season of Search Party, spoke finally expressed on this famous rumor – rather ephemeral according to her. “The rumor disappeared as quickly as it came to light. It was at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, and I was alone. It was very strange. Now it’s like a weird dream, I wonder if it really happened “she explained, emphasizing her disbelief in this major event in the people sphere.
Another who may wonder what really happened is Brad Pitt himself. Yes, Alia Shawkat explained that the actor known in the whole world “knew absolutely nothing about it, because he does not read this bullshit”. Yet the 32-year-old actress spoke to him about it. “I said to him, ‘You know everyone thinks we’re dating? And there’s all this stuff, and they’re being followed.’ He said, ‘I’m sorry, that happens. When people hang out with me, it happens. He was absolutely unaware of it. ” Even if he was unaware of all the rumors which put him in a relationship with Alia Shawkat, Brad Pitt still wanted to apologize for the inconvenience that this may have caused for the young woman. In addition to the paparazzi and others, Alia Shawkat indeed explained to the New Yorker that even her grandmother who does not speak English very well had heard this famous rumor.
Brad Pitt denied the rumor
A situation that amused Alia Shawkat a lot, who takes things as they come. “I’m an actress who’s never had to deal with the paparazzi. They don’t know who I am, that’s the irony of the situation. It has nothing to do with who Brad Pitt is, c He’s a great guy. But obviously the idea of dating an older white man is what gets me the most attention, not my 20-year career. That’s what I find gripping. ” According to her words, Alia Shawkat has never gone out with Brad Pitt. The latter before meanwhile declared in December 2019 in the New York Times that “none of this [was] true”.
